Kermit Erasmus

Kermit Romeo Erasmus is a South African professional footballer who plays for ABSA Premiership side Cape Town City and the South African national football team. Born in Port Elizabeth, Erasmus moved to Pretoria as a teenager where he made his professional debut with SuperSport United in 2007. He spent the next two seasons in the Netherlands with Feyenoord and Excelsior before returning to SuperSport United. During his second spell with the club, he made over 50 appearances and helped his side to the Nedbank Cup title before joining Orlando Pirates in 2013.
